Abstract

Canadian Post Secondary Institutions are inextricably linked to European imperialism and colonialism. A key element of settler colonialism is to remove Indigenous means of knowledge transferral by eliminating community involvement in the intellectual, cultural, and spiritual development of Indigenous learners to silence and condemn Indigenous pedagogy because they challenge the colonial mission and promote the survival and revitalization of Indigenous culture (Smith, 2012, p. 21).
